Fifty award-winning literacy educators contribute more than thirty-five "engagements"-student-focused, classroom-tested instructional and assessment actions-to strengthen the reader in every child, while reinforcing one essential fact: reading involves constructing meaning.

Each engagement includes:

  • A brief introduction

  • Why?-Benefits of the engagement

  • Who?-Students that would benefit most from the engagement

  • How?-Materials and instructions for effective implementation

  • Closure/Stepping Back-Concluding the engagement

  • How's It Going? Informal Assessment

  • Sources for more information

With helpful tips, photos, callouts for additional resources found at, an appendix of forms, and lists of professional titles and children literature, Reading Revealed offers indispensable support for helping students approach reading strategically and joyfully.


"Reading Revealed is a gem for its vast collection of ideas and instructional practices. 50 educators with diverse background contributed to this stellar collection of culturally responsive literacy strategies, complete with vignettes, videos, and student work samples. The informal assessment section supports and guides instruction – the key to successful teaching and learning." – Vân Truong, Ed.D., former Interim Assistant Superintendent, Teaching and Learning, Portland Public Schools,

"In Reading Revealed, distinguished teachers make explicit how they apply an array of principled literacy practices to ensure each child's reading experience is personal, relevant, and meaningful. They explain how, when, and why to apply responsive teaching and assessing actions so every child becomes an engaged, proficient, and joyful reader. Valuable instructional techniques–including suggested language to use–for choosing books, asking questions, discussing texts, conferring with students, and much more are provided in 'you can do it' detail. An excellent, easy-to-access resource with a wealth of ideas for developing self-directed readers who comprehend and explore texts deeply!" – Regie Routmaneducator and author of Literacy Essentials: Engagement, Excellence and Equality for All Learners,
